    [Best served in a Dimpled Mug]

    Poured a nice rich clear medium to dark brown with an average sized light brown head that was mostly diminishing leaving just a little residue hanging around allowing for good lacing. The aroma was of a nutty caramel malt and a doughy yeast with a nice note of hazelnut, brown sugar and a ever so light touch of coffee. It tasted lightly sweet with hints of caramel and coffee in the beginning. Then it matured into a very malty-nutty flavor with the hazelnut being the most pronounced at the finish, although the flavor could of lasted a little longer on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was medium in body and creamy yet slightly watery in texture as alot of brown ales can be with the carbonation being ever so perfectly soft. Overall a very nice malty nut brown ale, this happens to be my favorite style and this brew fits it very well indeed.

    Enjoyed a 22oz with a friend. Pours a bit lighter than I expected, mahogany with a ruby glow and a short-lived bubbly head. The aroma is caramel sweetness and decadent hazelnut, perhaps a light coffee but without much roast. My friend rightly pointed out that the hazelnut flavor is so intense that you almost breathe it, like Frangelico. It's super sweet - there's no denying that - but the body is so light that it doesn't overpower. Incredibly smooth through the middle and finish and only the hazelnut lingers. Not much fence-riding on this beer, you either like hazelnut or you don't. And I do.

    This is my all time fav beer. The smell is wonderful with chocolate and hazelnut. The pour is a dark brown with glow. It pours with a rich thick creamy head.

    Taste is out of this world. You will get some chocolate along with cinn/sugar tosted nut flavor to it. I wouldn't call it a super sweat beer but it tickles your tounge with the taste.

    I had this the other night with some hot wings and the taste went up a whole nother notch. I also had it with a french dip and it lifted the level of the dip a great deal.

    Rogue keep it up...
